Nick McHatton from TV Fanatic, gave a 4.0 star rating out of 5, stating, "Getting to the episode, not much happened this week, and for the most part Grimm suffered because of it. Most of it is due to the unresolved obstacles between Nick and Juliette. I'm all for characters growing further apart as the secrets one or more of them harbor continue to pile on and on, but when it happens too quickly or things begin to get out of hand it's time to change things up or resolve it. Grimm has reached that point."
Shilo Adams from TV Overmind wrote, "Grimm may have been about the birds tonight, but thankfully, it didn't lay an egg. (Har har.) 'The Thing with Feathers' felt like a strong balance between procedural and serial, Nick and his supporting cast, the human and Grimm sides of Nick Burkhardt. It's been tough for Grimm to strike that kind of harmony between all of its elements, with only a few episodes clicking on all cylinders. Last night may have featured a slightly rote case, but it was surrounded by a lot of good stuff and the way it was handled differentiated it from the dryer, less unique episodes earlier in the season. Grimm may have found a way to handle a solid supporting cast and two important sides of its storytelling, but it looks like Nick has to figure out just how much of his other life he'll let Juliette in on, if any at all."
Adalind called Sean Renard and asked him who killed her mother. Renard responded that they did not know and asked Adalind what she did to Juliette. Adalind answered that Nick took something away from her, so she took something away from him. When Renard told Adalind that Juliette was awake, Adalind correctly concluded that Renard must have had something to do with her waking up and told him that he was going to be having some fun, as was she. She then hung up.
At the castle, Adalind met with Eric Renard and said that Sean Renard had not been able to get Nick's key yet. She told him that Sean told her he couldn't get it within the given time frame, even though he knew what his brother threatened to do if he did not. Eric said he'd have to pay his brother a visit. He then noticed something different about Adalind. She said it was just because she was with him.
In the cabin, Adalind was in labor as Meisner tried to get things organized quickly. As he told her to breathe, Adalind told him just to get the baby out of her and to not let it kill her. Adalind held on to Meisner's hand as he was trying to get her to calm down and breathe, but Adalind ended up biting his hand. As soon as she did that, books on the bedside table flew at Meisner, forcing him to quickly duck. He told her to stop that, and she painfully asked, "Stop what?" He told her to keep pushing, and a few seconds later, the baby was born. Right after Adalind saw her baby, she woged into a Hexenbiest. She cracked a small smile as she realized that the trials with Stefania worked, and she had regained her powers. While Adalind and the baby were sleeping, Meisner called Renard to tell him the news that Adalind gave birth to a girl. Later in the night, Meisner put another blanket on Adalind. He reached down and pushed Adalind's hair to the side, and it started to wrap around his hand. He tried to get free without waking Adalind, but the baby woke up with glowing purple eyes, staring at him. After a few seconds, Adalind's hair finally unwrapped from around Meisner's hand.
Adalind got food from Sean's fridge while he held the baby. Sean told her she should stay away from the windows of his home because the less people who knew she was there, the better. Sean asked her how she got to his house, and she told him about the stolen truck. Sean's intercom buzzed, and he was told that Nick was downstairs. Sean said to send him up, which didn't please Adalind at all. She told Sean to make sure he was alone and to kill him if he tried to take the baby. When Nick arrived, Adalind asked what he wanted. He told her he wasn't there to hurt her or take her baby. Nick said that his mom risked her life to help her, and Adalind asked what would she have done if she'd known she was a Hexenbiest and woged. Nick told her that the best chance that her and the baby had was for them to work together. Nick told Adalind and Renard that when they were ready, they'd talk. After Nick left, Renard told Adalind he would do everything he could to protect the baby, so she should stay with him. Adalind asked if that meant they were back together, and he said he guessed so. While they were talking, Renard got a call from Nick to warn him about the men on their way up. Renard hung up and told Adalind they needed to go. They headed to the elevator, and as soon as they got to it, Nick came out of one. He told them to be quiet for a second, and he used his enhanced hearing to figure out the men were coming up the stairwell. After both Verrat men were defeated, everyone left the building. Everyone arrived at Monroe and Rosalee's home, but before they went in, Adalind said she wanted to know where she was, but she was told by Kelly that it was better she didn't know; that way, the people after her wouldn't know where to look. Inside, Rosalee got Adalind and the baby settled. After everyone left, Adalind told Rosalee that she didn't want to be alone, and Rosalee said she wouldn't be. Later that night, the baby was crying, and Adalind couldn't get her to stop. Monroe and Rosalee got out of bed to see what was going on. Rosalee noticed the baby had a little fever, which could have been why she was crying so much. Suddenly, all the clocks in the house went wild as the baby started crying harder. Just as sudden, she stopped crying, and the clocks calmed down. Monroe asked what just happened as Kelly walked into the living room. The next morning, multiple cops burst into the house to arrest Kelly for the murder of Catherine Schade, surprising Adalind. Adalind and Renard talked on the phone about what just happened, and Adalind explained her confusion because she thought Nick had killed her mom. Renard said there was new evidence, and he needed her to come to the precinct to make a statement about where she was when her mother died. Adalind said she wasn't leaving the baby, so Renard told her to bring the baby with her, and he would send a patrol car to pick them up. When Adalind arrived, an officer took her to Renard's office. Renard said the officer would take her to the interview room, so she could leave the baby with him. Adalind handed the baby to Renard, and Adalind said she thought of a name for the baby: Diana. When Adalind arrived to the interview room, she was surprised to find Kelly there too. Adalind asked what she was doing there, and Kelly said she wanted to talk to her because, at the very least, she owed her an explanation. Kelly told Adalind that she was looking for her the day Catherine died because of what she did to Juliette. Kelly said that Catherine wouldn't say anything, so she had to make her because her other choice was to let Juliette die. While they were talking, Renard left the precinct with Diana. In the interview room, Adalind said she was angry at Nick because he took her powers. Adalind asked why they were having this conversation, and Kelly said she had to give up Nick because of who she was, and if she hadn't done so, he might have been killed. Adalind told her that was her problem, and if she was looking for forgiveness, she didn't have any. Kelly said she wasn't looking for forgiveness, but she wanted her to understand that "sometimes we have to sacrifice what we love most." As soon as Kelly said that, Adalind suddenly realized what was going on and ran out of the room looking for Renard. Adalind went to Renard's office, only to find him and Diana no longer there. She asked Wu where he was, and he said Renard just walked out a few minutes ago. Adalind ran off and saw Renard as he came back inside. She demanded to know where her daughter was, and Renard said he had no choice because Viktor would have killed both of them if he didn't give Diana to him. Renard said it was the only way to protect her, and Adalind ran outside to the street and frantically looked around for Viktor. Once she realized he was gone, she woged and let out a screaming roar that broke all nearby car windows and set off their alarms before collapsing to her knees, crying in the middle of the street.
Adalind went to Nick and Juliette's house and said she needed Nick's help. She told Nick that Renard gave Diana to Viktor and that he tried to act like he didnt't know anything. Adalind told Nick he had to get his mom out of jail and said she didn't care that Kelly killed her mom because it was probably her fault anyway. Nick told Adalind that Kelly was released a couple hours ago and already left town, and he had no idea where she went. Adalind told Nick that he had to help her get Diana back then. Juliette walked up to Adalind and said if the Royals had her baby, they wouldn't be in Portland anymore, causing Adalind to woge. She angrily said she wasn't giving up her baby and stormed out of the house after Nick said there was nothing they could do. Renard pulled into the parking garage of his condo building, and Adalind stepped in front of him, causing him to slam on his breaks. Renard got out of his car, and Adalind told him to get Diana back. Renard said he couldn't, which caused Adalind to woge and shove Renard back, making him hit the front of his vehicle. He woged, and Adalind said she hated him and hit him in the face, leaving behind three scratch marks. She tried to hit him again, but Renard grabbed her hand and said he didn't blame her for hating him. They both retracted, and Adalind calmly asked him to help her. Renard said he didn't know how, and Adalind said, "Figure it out because one day I'll stop crying." The next day, Adalind went to Monroe's home, told Rosalee that Diana was taken from her, and hugged Rosalee. Later in the day, Rosalee brought Adalind a drink to help her rest, despite Adalind saying she didn't want to rest. Rosalee said she needed to go to the spice shop, but she wasn't leaving until Adalind fell asleep. Later, Monroe put a blanket over Adalind as she slept before leaving with Nick and Hank. Adalind awoke to a knock at the door. Once she realized no one else was home, she got up to answer the door. She was happily surprised to see that it was Sean who had Diana in his arms. Sean started to hand the baby to Adalind, but he then handed her to Viktor, which caused Adalind to scream and wake up from her nightmare. As soon as she woke up, she grabbed the phone and dialed a number. At the castle, Viktor was informed that Adalind was calling, and Viktor said he would take the call. Adalind apologized for everything and pleaded for her baby, saying she'd do anything, even if she had to come back to Europe. Viktor looked at Marcus Rispoli, surprised that Adalind thought they still had the child. Viktor told Adalind he'd think about it and told her to call back later. Adalind sat on the couch, woged, and said she was done crying. Viktor was sitting in front of his fireplace when Adalind called back. Viktor continued to make her think he had Diana still and said, "It's time to return the favor (after she mentioned that her powers were taken from her). You have the blood of the Grimm in you. That makes him vulnerable." Renard was getting ready to head home from the precinct when Wu told him that Adalind was there to see him. She slowly walked toward him after saying she wasn't sure she'd ever forgive him. She said that maybe he did make the right decision because the Royals would have continued to come after them. She hugged Renard, much to his surprise, and smiled. Renard then took Adalind home with him. 041b061a72
